How do traditionally grown companies manage change? Ways to new business fields

IT and its tasks and orientation are changing – very quickly or not fast enough, depending on the perspective from which it is viewed. This also changes the area of responsibility of those responsible. The economic success of a company no longer depends solely on its products and services. The right mix of culture and technology becomes decisive: the will to understand the new possibilities and the courage to implement these uncompromisingly in new business areas.

At our strategy summit on IT and Information Management, let us discuss together whether internal IT is still necessary at all, whether IT is completely integrated into business, or how IT can be set up to generate and document significant value added. What steps do CIOs & CDOs have to take today to influence the development in your interest, for the best of the company?

Main Topics

  • Culture as key
  • Leadership and role model CIO
  • Management Agility
  • IT Strategy & Business Strategy
  • Digitization from 0 to 100
  • IT Security Data Sharing & Data Strategies
  • Agility Digital Ecosystems
